in which I write about stuff

Archives for July 2002

rant-o-matic, or: I want walkie-talkies!

so we got cell phones again, and they’re just as much of a pain in the ass as they were the last time we tried (for about a week last winter(?)) – the coverage is absolutely lousy out at the college; steilacoom doesn’t like cell towers. and they’re too small, too hard to hear in […]

almost there.

but no internet at the new place yet, so very sparse blogging. I do have many days worth of linking goodness which I want to comment on. later, later, later. this has ever been my mantra. I so much want to write about all of this, but it just hasn’t been possible. I’m tired, and […]

breaking radio silence (so to speak)

it’s been a long, busy day. but tonight (eventually) I’ll be sleeping in my own bed in my new house. note to self: don’t ever sleep on the floor again. ever.

– The Morning News, another site I often forget. – congratulations, and fuckin’ a, Dave.

likely downtime

well, we’ve signed all the papers, and on Monday we pick up keys. which means that now thru the end of July I will be cleaning, packing, moving, cleaning, etc., etc. which means that posting (and emailing) may be a bit light for a while. but first have to admit to being very, very happy […]

yes, I’m feeling much better.

I still want to blog on these topics, reply to David W. again, and email my whole list with my moving info. actually, I’ll go do that right now…
